The Memphis Tigers and Utah State Aggies meet up in the First Responder Bowl at Gerald J. Ford Stadium in Dallas, Texas. Kickoff is set for 3:15 p.m. ET, and the game will air on ESPN.
Memphis (6-6, 3-5 AAC) won consecutive games before closing out the regular season with a loss to the SMU Mustangs. The Tigers qualified for a bowl for the ninth consecutive season, but their Hawai’i Bowl matchup was canceled last year. Quarterback Seth Henigan completed 63.8% of passes for 3,287 yards with 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions on the season.
Utah State (6-6, 5-3 Mountain West) used a number of quarterbacks throughout the season due to injuries at the position, and true freshman, fourth-string QB Bishop Davenport needed to start at one point. The Aggies reached a bowl game for the second consecutive season under Blake Anderson after an 11-win year in his first season in charge of the program.
Memphis snapped a five-game losing streak in bowl games before taking the Montgomery Bowl in 2020, while Utah State won two of its last three.
